Range-topping Rover V8 saloon launched at Geneva

MG Rover Group has unveiled a new 75-based Rover V8 saloon at the Geneva show. The 4.6-litre car is distinguished externally by a new front-end treatment. MG Sport and Racing added a higher-powered version of the XPOWER SV, too.

With the 'R' version of the recently launched MG XPOWER SV from MG Sport & Racing, extra performance comes from a 5-0 litre, 400hp XPOWER version of the all-aluminium, 32 valve, double overhead camshaft V8 engine. Built in collaboration with tuning specialist Sean Hyland, the carbon fibre-bodied car accelerates from 0-60 mph in under 5 seconds. Prices for the entry level SV start at £65,750, whereas the new SV-R starts from £82,950.
